Sooo, 2 weeks of fashion are over, Easter is ahead and many things have happened! I never made it to see Zoulias show because the place was packed (which reminded me of a sold out concert, long time ago, mixed feelings), a classmate I haven’t seen for years won the best designer award (he was worth it) and my dear Bianca took a hothothot picture of me! I also met in person 2 of my favourite bloggers Thaleia and my namemate Haritini, they are both lovely* 🙂 In other news:  look what landed on my doorstep! A cherry red mannequin who will help me make some new skirts without actually pining them on my waist! And last but not least check Supermarketsarah to see how she is selling vintage on-line! Innovative – funky – and above all very very tasteful site! Leaving you with the ultimate Easter color and counting the hours until I ‘m on the plane to Istanbul! Have fun y’all!

*and of course Alecca Rox! One more lovely girl!

If you don’t know what to do with your old clothes, why don’t you make them art? At least this is what Derick Melander did with impressive results! Ok all these clothes are not his obviously, still to me it is very important that he used what would end up in the garbage bin, to create something so visually pleasing.  The shoe foto is amazing!

bright and tribal

March 20, 2010

I vaguely remember this techno tribal trend when I was 8 or 9 years old, the very fat Reebok and the animal prints in bright colors, the mc Hammer harem pants (I-will-never-wear-this-thing, hear me fashion marketeers), even some of my sketchbooks had this mixed striped patterns on the front page! Well let’s face it, when the trends that were on when I was 9 re-emerge, I must be getting older! Truth is I think they look a lot  fresher and wearable now.

Whatever these guys are making is unique and I mean literally u-nique. I ‘m talking about Black Sheep and Prodigal Sons who use real hair and bones and horns to make  jewelry and some hmm .. razors. This time what caught my eye is this ring made out of oxidized silver which serves as a cell for an ammonite fossil! I can’t even begin to describe you how much I love this organic form!

Why don’t we indulge in our very own type of viewing pleasure?
